    ANTI-TYPHOID INOCULATION

    Dr.  A.  B.  Wright, Professor of Pathology in the Army Medical School, Netley, publishes in the Lancet this week a note on the result obtained by the anti-typhoid inoculations among the beleagured garrison, both officers and men, at Ladysmith.  The following table shows the position:

                            Not inoculated        Inoculated

Number under observation.    ------------------    10,529            1,705

Number cases of enteric fever.     --------------      1,489                 35

Proportion in which attacks stand to total

    number of men in group.       ----------    1 in 7.07            1 in 48.7

Number of deaths from enteric fever.       -------        329                    8

Proportion in which deaths stand to total       

    number of men in group.       ----------    1 in 32                1 in 213

Proportion in which deaths stand to total

    number of attacks in group.    ---------    1 in 4.52            1 in 4.4

 

    Professor Wright points out that the question as to whether the inoculated were more favourably circumstanced in the matter of the situation of their camps than the uninoculated will have to be considered later, but at present no data for the determination of this are forthcoming, and the assumption is that the inoculated and uninoculated were equally exposed to the risk of infection.  He reminds his readers that, so far as is known, the men who were set down as inoculated were with hardly an exception only once inoculated, while from facts in his possession he considers that the second inoculation confers considerably increased protection.  He also alludes to the possibility that certain of the officers were set down as inoculated who may have been inoculated with anti-typhoid serum and not with the vaccine consisting of the sterilized typhoid culture, while he thinks it likely that revaccination against smallpox, which was in many cases carried out on board the transports, may have been confused with anti-typhoid inoculation. Also, in many so-called inoculated cases the anti-typhoid injection has been, he knows, too small. From all these considerations Professor Wright hopes that the favourable aspect of the table does not exaggerate the benefits that may follow upon anti-typhoid inoculations.

    Invalided Colonial Soldiers

    We have received the following from Lord Carrington: – 

    ‘It has come to the knowledge of the Temporary Loan Fund for Wounded and Invalided Soldiers in England that convalescent members of the colonial contingents are being sent back to their respective colonies as steerage passengers in passenger steamships.  Eleven colonial wounded soldiers having sailed from England on October 12 in the Royal Mail steamer Ormuz as steerage passengers, the Orient Company, with the sanction of the Lord Mayor, telegraphed to the commander of the Ormuz at Gibralter to put these colonial convalescents on the dietary of the second saloon and allow them the second-class deck and comforts.  Similar arrangements are being made with the Castle-Union Line to Cape Town and with the Canadian Dominion Line.  It is felt that it would be within the province of the Imperial Government to arrange that these colonial Volunteers, many of whom are enteric patients requiring special care, should be despatched to their respective colonies in a manner more fitting their needs and condition.’
